Terry Funk, now 68, addressed retirement recently.
“I had a match against Tommy Dreamer for a company just over a year ago, and that truly and honestly is my last match. That said, there’s no point in being an idiot. If somebody approached me offering an extreme amount of money to wrestle, I’d be a fool not to. Take into consideration, too, that the quicker I’d lose, the more money I’d walk away with. Think about that. I am retired, but if some idiot wants to go ahead and give me much more than I’m worth, well then, I’d take it from them. What I’ve often thought about is having one more show, where I’d sell the tickets for $1 million apiece. If I sell one ticket, then I go ahead and I wrestle. If I don’t sell any, I don’t wrestle. But seriously, I am retired for good, but that doesn’t sound like too bad of an idea.”
